In the tradition of the highly successful Web site YouTube™, the Jacksonville Jaguars today launched a fan-based promotion entitled "Teal Tube." Over a two-week period, fans will have the opportunity to win a pair of 2007 Jaguars season tickets by submitting homemade videos that answer the question: "How do you show your Jaguars team colors?"
Beginning October 31, fans are encouraged to visit www.tealtube.com to submit a one- to two-minute video. Submissions will be accepted until November 12, when the Jaguars will pick the top video finalists to be voted on by the fans via jaguars.com. Criteria for being selected for final judging include passion, creativity and entertainment value. Additional promotional rules are outlined on tealtube.com.
"We wanted to launch something that would showcase the loyalty and creativity of our great Jaguars fans," said Jennifer Perkins, Director of Marketing and Special Events for the Jaguars. "We are looking for videos that display the unique rituals and traditions that our fans have created over the past twelve years – videos that highlight the passion fans have for their hometown team…whether they be humorous or serious."
Upon completion of the fan voting on November 17, prizes will be awarded to three finalists. The three finalists and a guest will receive tickets and pregame on-field passes for the Monday Night Football game against the New York Giants on November 20. A portion of each of the finalists' videos will be featured on the video boards during the game, with first, second and third place prizes announced at the game. First place will receive a pair of season tickets for the Jaguars 2007 season. Second and third place will receive Jaguars prize packs with autographed merchandise.
User-friendly instructions for uploading videos are available at tealtube.com. Submissions can be submitted through a variety of formats, including films shot on camera phones.
"We are encouraging fans to participate in this fun-spirited promotion," said Perkins. "I'm confident that we'll see a wide variety of submissions, and I know the fans are going to love watching the winning videos during our upcoming Monday night game against the Giants."
